Family Rosary – Uganda: Youth Conference Held “Faith Without Action is Dead”

10/22/2013

 

Recently our mission team in Uganda was invited to St Jude Catholic Parish in Kyarusozi to give a conference for the youth of the parish. Kyarusozi is located in the Catholic Diocese of Fort Portal about 300 kilometers - about 150 miles - from Kampala, the capital city of Uganda.

Mission staff were there for the weekend of Aug 20-22, with more than 850 high-energy young people. Needless to say it was a hectic but fulfilling weekend.

Father Chris Letikirich, CSC, Director in East Africa, was the keynote speaker sharing his call to action to the youth on the theme, “Faith Without Action is Dead.” The gathering also prayed with scripture, prayed the Rosary, viewed a movie and held a question-and-answer session where participants freely shared their real-life faith challenges and sought guidance on how to live their faith. Mass was held with Father Willy Frank Lukati and Father Vincent Mbusa and Reconciliation was offered. Many youth shared that they were inspired to experience the Sacrament of Reconciliation even though it had been quite some time for them.
